Oversized shirt- Limited Edition Garfield Collection by Only, Jeans & Tank- Only, Shoes- Koi Footwear, Glasses- H&M| Location- Mumbai Vibe

Everyone once in a while, Only comes out with their limited edition collections & since last year's Mickey collection, I've been waiting to see their new edition! This time it's the Garfield collection which includes oversized shirts, a cute bralet, quirky sweatshirts and lots more with the iconic Garfield print. I'm not a huge Disney fan, specially when it comes to clothes but I couldn't pass up on this oversized black shirt! Not only can it be styled in so many different ways, it actually lets a 26 years old get away with donning it. The collection is now in stores for you to grab but because it's limited edition, the number of pieces are scarce so if I were you, i'd be on my way!

Top- Veromoda, Jacket & Slip dress- Veromoda, Stockings- Forever21, Shoes- Koi Footwear| Location- Amanzi

Currently the fashion world or rather the Instagram world seems to be going through a phase where there is something for everyone. No matter what your style is, you're bound to find your style soulmate and no doubt love every outfit she adorns. But every season there are a few trends that #trend on Instagram and currently I feel like these are the top 5! For the fun of it & to of course in an attempt to create "different" content, I layered all those 5 trends in this look.

1) Ruffles & Big Sleeves
You've probably been watching all your favourite bloggers, national & international rocking this much loved trend. I honestly have seen more people than I can usually stand donning this trend but I still can't seem to get enough of it! This top from Veromoda has not only got those big, eye catchy sleeves but it also comes in the much loved colour of the moment, pink. Win win I say.

2) Slip dresses
The fashion world had a moment with this trend not so long ago but this season, it's back & in daring fabrics. So if you thought you could get away with your body con, non-shiny slip dress, think again. It's all about this dress in fabrics like velvet, satin and shiny versions of polyester. The shinier, the better. Also, don't be afraid to go a size up. Oversized dressing is yet another trend to watch out for!

3) Net Worth
Fish net stockings are having a moment on Instagram and I couldn't stop myself from giving it my own spin. Pair it with ripped jeans or a skirt or dress or even a peek at the ankles is all you need to be the good girl gone trendy. 

4) Metallic
This is one trend that has been carried over from last season and how! It's all about those metallic moto jackets, culottes, dresses or even nails! The best way to rock one of these is by pairing it with more casual pieces. So say, pair a muted gold moto jacket with a pair of ripped jeans (and maybe the fish net stocking under it) along with a simple white top. Or simpler, get those chrome nails on!

5) Tress free
Post the wedding, I got 5 inches taken off my mane because I was kind of done with the long hair look (only to crave it 3 days later). But I've been loving the laid back vibe when it comes to tresses. I've noticed most people giving their irons and curlers a skip and rather going for simple blow outs & lots of sea salt sprays to get that volume and texture going. So honestly, this is probably the best time to rock your bed head and get away with it.

Jeans- Only, T-shirt- Only, Watch- Daniel Wellington, Bag- Chanel, Shoes- Veromoda, Glasses- H&M, Denim Bomber- Only


We shot this look during our brief trip to Taiwan! It was a gorgeous sunny day with cold winds and we were wandering round the Yehliu Geopark staring at the gorgeous pacific ocean & the result of years of erosion. Anyway's as it was going to be a long day with a lot of quick strides, I decided to go a comfy outfit. These jeans from Only did not only tick the comfort box but it also scored high on the trend aspect. To match it, I chose this basic stripped tee which was punctuated with these chic patches and to add in that extra layer, I threw on this chambray bomber. This entire collection by Only is all about the street style look. Jeans with quirky quotes and patches, chambray dresses with a chic sporty vibe, denim jackets with floral details and lots of t-shirts with cold shoulder detailing to add to your college or weekend wardrobe!

Dress- Veromoda, Shoes- Steve Madden, Belt- St. Frock, Bag- Chanel, Sunglasses- RayBan

The new fashion season has begun & it's time to let go of your favourite fall/winter looks and make way for the all new trends for 2017. Lots of volume, shades of pink, oversized everything with cropped everything else, velvet, off shoulders are here to stay but one of my favourite trends is embroidery and appliqués on denims, jackets, shirts and even sheer dresses! This sheer, midi length beauty from Veromoda could hence not be passed up on. Not only does the peek-a-boo play catalyst in achieving that sexy date night look but the length and embroidery add the classic yet on trend vibe to it. I love drawing attention to my waist to create a close to hourglass figure so I added a belt but if you're going for a more androgynous vibe, try pairing it with a lace bustier and fitted trousers or even with a blazer for an extremely elegant feel. And if you're someone who loves the embroidery but runs away from dresses, Veromoda is doing similar appliqués in shirts, t-shirts and more causal pieces too! They key to rocking this trend is sticking to basic black & white palette and adding a punch of colour through the embroidery with gorgeous reds, yellows & greens. I can't wait to flaunt more of this trend not just through summer but hopefully throughout the year.

Suede Jacket- Veromoda, White lace top & Suede skirt- Veromoda, Shoes- Gianvito Rossi| Location- Pantry, Mumbai


Unlike the previous few years, this party season seems to have spilled into January as well! Usually the holiday parties end with New Years Eve but it's 3rd January today and I've already been to two parties and have atleast 10 more to go before this month ends. So I'm making the most of the on going sales and grabbing some fun pieces that I can add to my stack of slay clothes. This suedette mini skirt from Veromoda is a piece that you can dress in so many different ways and make it look brand new with just switching the pieces around. I love the hue as well because it works into so many different colour palettes making the perfect transition piece. 

For this look, I paired it with a intricate lace & crochet top which created a subtle contrast. To amp it up a bit, I threw on this suedette fringe jacket! This jacket is definitely another piece thats going to be in my closet for years. The fabric, the cut, the colour, the style, the gold buttons, there's nothing that can ever make me dislike it! To finish off, my trustee Gianvito Rossi heels & a choker did the trick. For another event, I plan to pair this skirt with a ruffled black lace top and with an army green shirt for yet another day time event. What's your take on this look & what are the trends you're currently loving?

Top & Skirt- Veromoda, Light Box- ALittleLovelyCompany

Where do I even begin? This year has been the best learning experience I could ask for. To cherish whats yours instead of seeking whats not; To live in the moment instead of trying to capture it alone; To not be afraid of sticking to your own even when the entire world is swaying the other way; To never take your loved ones for granted; it's been a crazy set of 366 days! This year, a lot of my time and energy was divided between the two loves of my life (work & Him) and striking that balance on some days seemed almost impossible yet on others, sounded like a sweet symphony. And in all this chaos, although the good moments won over the not so good ones, the latter made me cherish the former a hell lot more. 

Getting married was definitely the highlight of this year. Not only because it is a milestone in this story called life but because I was all set to start a new journey in more ways than one. You know I sometimes feel like we misuse the word 'Independence' a lot. I've heard every other person talking about how she is a 'Girl Boss' or how he is 'Independent' just because she/he may have started making their own moolah. And I'd be lying if I said I wasn't guilty of doing the same in the past but this past month has taught me the true meaning of being 'Independent'. Having lived with my doting parents & brother for the past 26 years, I suppose I did sometimes over look the comfort & love I was showered with. But it's only when you start taking account of the groceries you need to buy, the laundry you need to deal with, the meal you need to cook next or start to pay every single bill do you you realize what the tag of being Independent actually comes with. And please don't mistake this for a complaint because as hectic as it may sound, I love doing every bit of it with someone I love so dearly, constantly by my side, playing the perfect partner in crime! I'm just trying to throw some light on why context is so important. 

Anyways enough of my chatter. We took some these images at our new place last week & I swear we were all set to leave for the location we had in mind but the setting sunlight mesmerized us into doing this. This gorgeous top & skirt from Veromoda glimmered just the right amount as the rays hit it, mimicking the crazy New Year's Eve night you may have planned! I hope you guys have an amazing year ahead not just in your field of work or personal life but spiritually & mentally! May you shine brighter than the sun & may we be blessed with the next big thing because I'm starting to get done with Instagram. Just joking. Lastly, as cheesy as it may sound, I just want to Thank each and everyone one of you for being such gracious people and for accepting the changes in me & my life as your own and supporting me even when there is a new Fashion Blogger on Instagram everyday. Can you tell I'm genuinely done with Instagram? Joking again. Have a lovely evening & fun filled year. Lots of love.
